I am very excited to be directing this season's opening production.
The Tony-winning musical Guys & Dolls is one of my favorite shows.
It exists in its own world and gives each performer an opportunity to really "step outside" himself or herself in his portrayal.
Of course the songs are glorious: Sarah and Sky's lovely duet "I'll Know", Adelaide's famous "Lament", the show stopping "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat", the nightclub production number "A Bushel and A Peck", the terrific dance number for the guys "Luck Be a Lady Tonight", Arvide's tender "More I Cannot Wish You", and of course the glorious title song.
Listen to it HERE.
The show will be a LOT of hard work, but I think it will also be a LOT of fun.
There are many speaking roles for men in the show, and the women get to do some fun song numbers and character work.
This is a great opportunity for many performers to appear onstage.
I hope to see many of you at auditions!
